  Epic: A Journey through Church History
  by Steve Weidenkopf & Dr. Alan Schreck

 The epic story of the Catholic Church spans thousands of years. With an unlikely beginning in a remote outpost of the Roman empire, the Catholic Church now claims over a billion living members.  The  persecutions, martyrdoms, conquests, and triumphs all came together to shape Western civilization as we know it today.

 Our identity as Catholics means that we are the inheritors of the deeds of holy men and women who for 2,000 years have built a great civilization and spread the Gospel throughout the world.  Church    history is not just the recitation of popes, people, places, and events; it is a story of adventure, intrigue, rebellion, reform, and devotion. This story is, in fact, our story; this is our family.  If we know our  past, and how we fit into the story, we will be better prepared to face whatever may come in the future.
